Looking for Linux Software (Freeware).





ProfessorY91
I don't know how many hits I'm going to get on this thread, but its worth a shot.

I recently switched to the latest version of Ubuntu (Ver. 8.10), and I find it spectacular. Its fast, the programs are free, you can program in C and Java with little to no hassle, and drivers are (almost always) easily updated. Compatibility is always a bit of an issue (darn printer!), but its well worth it.

Anyways, there are always some freeware programs that people find extremely useful, that can be found only through years of trawling the internet, and quite a bit of luck. We all build our own lists, and use different things. If you hae a useful program, be it Media Player, or Internet Browser, or anything, please post it (as well as what it is used for) below. Its a chance to pass on your treasure trove of hard sought-after programs to the next generation of newbies.

Thanks in advance.

Programs I have: (pitifully few)

Amarock - Media player, music organizer, and iTunes lookalike for Ubuntu.
Compiz - Beautiful graphical effects as well as support for virtual desktops. Makes Linux worthwhile.
Deluge - Torrenting, nuff said.
Open Office - Word Processing, etc. The whole MS Office Suite for free.
Opera - Because its just that good; and it WAS the fastest before Google Chrome.
